    Hey,
    i just started dealing with mods and thanks to kael's guide and some forum reading managed to add (working) custom buildings and units. (much about copy-pasting other stuff and slicing it open, trying to find out how they work :rolleyes: )
    What i have not been able to complete succesfully however, is how to make a custom unique improvement work.
    i'd be really glad if someone could give me a direction to the right tutorials especially made for that, hopefully for xml, since i startet on that, (havent been able to find one) and/or answer me these specific questions:

    1. the main problem right now is that i cant find out how and where to add icons; for the pedia-entry, etc.
    how goes the xml-command, where goes the art-file(s), etc...?

    2. is there some way to access the unmodded civs? looking at the lines for inca, morocco, etc. could possibly really help me.

    thanks in advance!
    azzedar

    Take a look at my alien civ in steam workshop. It has a couple of custom improvements. Also my great people and standing stones mods have custom improvements.
